Soldier Blue (1970)

Another western that pushed the limits of movie violence. Its bloodshed is more bloody than The Wild Bunch but it can't match Peckinpah's brutal cynicism and misanthropy....

If you drink enough alcohol (or take appropriate drugs) it may also be bad enough for entertaining watching experience. Sadly I was sober when I watched it.
